Hi, I am using Reliance Broadnet Unlimited-75KBPs plan. While downloading movies i got nearly 6-7KBPS as an average speed.Can anyone explain why the problem is?Is it the speed we got while downloading or what's the cause for it?Regvasanth
Your speed is 75 kbps. It does not mean that you will get 75 as your download speed . Your download speed will be around 75/8= 9.3 .My connection is 256. I dont get 256 as my speed . It is always around 28 - 30. My actual speed however should be 256/8=32 . So your speed of 7 - 8 is not slow speed but it is actually close to the highest speed that your connection will allow.I read this in some magazine sometime ago. Maybe someone will correct me if i made a mistake.

I understand it.But 7KBPS=>7*8bits=56 bits/sec,but not kbps,because you converted that into bits.
1KBps=1024 bytes/sec or 1024*8 bits/sec.
Please clarify your answer how u got 56kbps
Thanks & Regards
Here's how it is...
1 KB (1 Kilo Byte) = 8 kb (8 Kilo Bits)
The download speed is measured in KBps (Kilo bytes per second) whereas the bandwidth is in Kbps (Kilo Bits per second)...so, if you are getting download speeds of 7 KBs, your bandwidth is 7*8= 56 Kbps. In your case, it is about 75% of claimed bandwidth...which should not be considered too bad.
Thanks mates !! Both u guys .Currently for my 128 kbps unltd plan, i am getting not more than 8-10 KBps(10*8=80kbps) during day and not more than 15 KBps(15*8=120 kbps) during nights. So its basically is par for the course, rite guys?
